Do you have the OXP? I tried to find it several times to no avail, would very much like it if it's sitting on someone's dusty virtual shelf..
Sadly don't have it on my HD either :(.
So this OXP is 'missing'? :?:

Stretch Adder for real?

Something pink?

Just a little inspiration for when you make a custom limo-ship, stretch adder or others. :D
Take an idea from one person and twist or modify it in a different way as a return suggestion so another person can see a part of it that can apply to the oxp they are working on.

:lol:

The concept is going well so far. I've got a page set up: http://oolite.ryanhoots.com/koneko-indu ... etch-adder

I think this has transformed from an OXP suggestion to a work in progress OXP.

Seeing the stretched Lambo reminded me of this recycled Asp I used for a YAH ad.

I still have a PM waiting in my outbox from July 2009 addressed to Murgh, who created the refugee Adder, asking him if he had a copy locally as it wasn't on Oosat 1/2 or linked on the wiki.

Maybe we should make a list for 'missing oxp's'?

BTW I like the stretch adder idea :D 'Strech Adders: 'The music is so irritating that you just want to shoot this crap from the space lanes'. :)

maybe if you scoop any escape pods or cargo from a destroyed one, it should either give you 'liquor/wines' or 'thoroughly anesthetized female humans'

I have a copy of the xptadder. It is still available on capnhack, but the file is not linked on the main page.
Maybe it was intended to be included in another OXP, but who knows.

The license states CC-by-nc-sa.

I can't believe that someone would do that to a Lamborghini...that's cruelty to a car that by all rights should have a soul.

I agree, Photoshop is EVIL!!! :lol:
You know those who, having been mugged and stabbed, fired, dog run over, house burned down, wife eloped with best friend, daughters becoming prostitutes and their countries invaded - still say that "all is well"?
I'm obviously not one of them.

Yeah, you're probably right there. It probably is a 'shopped image. Oh well, it's Friday arvo and I'm getting too brain dead to think hard...

I like the idea of Limo missions. I think the way to do it would be to treat it as a party, not a passenger / group of passengers. Maybe have a 20t "hospitality berth" or something instead of a passenger berths. They can be fitted to any ship, but you get much better prices for your limo jobs if they are fitted to an appropriate craft. Some (most?) early jobs would require that the ship be a stretch or something similarly "luxurious". I guess the way to do this would be to give each ship a "hospitality rating" that modifies (a) the price you get for a limo mission and (b) whether that mission is even available:
ship / hospitality rating
stretch adder / 5
Starseeker shuttle / 5
Ophidian Class Yacht / 4
Fer de Lance / 4
Supercobra / 3
Cobra III / 2
Anaconda / 1

If you wanted to make it *really* complicated, have different classes of (exponentially more expensive) hospitality berths that further modify the hospitality rating, so that if you really want to, you can totally pimp out your python to make it even cooler than a standard stretch adder.

According to RH some or all of these OXP ideas might require a new dockable, a "nightclub" station. Is it possible to generate these only in "Hoopy nightlife" systems?

[Name] is seeking a [adjective], [adjective] ride to [destination] in [system] for a party to [celebrate] [his/her/its] forthcoming [event]. [Cargo] should be provided, payment will be [price] on arrival.

[adjective] loud, brash, noisy, ostentatious, offensive, pretentious, ridiculous, bangin', crazy, wicked, hoopy, irritating, over-the-top, expensive, tasteless, shiny {Please help flesh out these lists}

[destination] Peppermint HippOO, Hoopy Casino, HoOoOters, roam around space indefinitely in a perpetual party {payment per system visited as long as they are aboard} {I'm guessing most destination venues would be planetside, requiring planetfall.oxp to be installed.}

[event] wedding, divorce, senior prom, Bar Mitzvah, birthday, spawn-cycle, adult gland inflation, symbiotic conjoinment, symbiotic host rejection, euthanasia, release from rehab

[cargo] 1 ton liquor/ wines, 1 ton food, 1 ton recreational substances. {providing narcotics for this purpose would run you a risk of getting in trouble with GalCop.} {Regardless of the contract requirements, ALL booze, food and drugs in cargo will eventually be consumed by the party, perhaps 1 ton per hour of gametime or something like that}

- Hoopy casinos would be an obvious destination for some of these parties, but presumably that would require modifications to that OXP.

- If you dock at a seedy space bar with a party in the back, there's a chance they'll pay you and debark without realising they're at the wrong place. If you're quick, you can launch again before they realise their mistake. This will affect your limo-driving rep, probably negatively but possibly positively (as it turns out, they had a great night out at the SSB!).

- Sometimes when you dock, you will find that your customers have made a huge mess in the back of your limo, and you'll have to get it valetted. Whether or not they have made a mess you get the chance to ask them for a clean up fee. If they refuse, you get the chance to "insist" that they pay a clean up fee. These things may or may not negatively affect your limo-driver rep depending on (a) whether or not they really made a mess (b) how drunk they are (liquor and narcs consumed) and (c) a random factor.

- When your rep gets high enough you can get some "classier" limo jobs for a slightly more sober class of customer, as suggested earlier in the thread (laughed at the Dumb and dumber references=-) However they often tend to be criminals and mob bosses, so although you don't have to put up with the music and vomit any more, you might have to deal with assassins, requests for slaves as well and booze and drugs and somewhat more severe consequences if you displease a customer (arrive late, try to con them out of cleanup money).

I like it! Ship -> discussion -> OXP idea

Brilliant.

(I love this forum!)

I just thought of something stupid. :P

You know those modified low-riders with the trick suspension that occasionally can be seen bouncing down the street in time to the music? 8)

The same technique used in Q-charger.oxp could be modified to have the ship "bounce" either left and right or up and down in time to a heavy bass cruisin' vibe while you are close enough to see them either along side or behind them. :lol:

Got a picture of that in your head now?

:lol: :lol: :lol:
Take an idea from one person and twist or modify it in a different way as a return suggestion so another person can see a part of it that can apply to the oxp they are working on.
